I've had my two clownfish for about a month now, so I do not think they have officially paired yet. However, they do often show the common signs, such as shaking at eachother, chasing around (not bitting though), and others. But, it does seem like the soon - to - be female of the pair seems to get a little more aggressive towards the night time. I do feed my clowns at night, so do you think that is the reason why?

My other clownfish doesn't have any nipped fins at this time, and never had any, but the other clown does seem to be getting increasingly aggressive as the day goes on. They also sleep together in the same rock crevice, which is defintely a good sign. Is this normal clownfish behavior? Again, MY FISH HAVE NO NIPPED FINS OR INJURIES.

Normal- nothing normal when it comes to clowns
- biting the owners hands
- sleeping in top corner
- moving ricks around
- trying to get a stick of dynamite to host it

yes it’s Norma if you regard a clown as normal

Well, does my clownfish behavior sound like anything I should be concerned about?

At this time no Unless the aggression becomes damaging
